Supreme Court Declines To Hear Google Appeal In Oracle Case

The U.S. Supreme Court has spoken (sorta). Technically they just refused to hear the case but the end result is the same.

Oracle Corp won a major legal victory on Monday in a closely watched copyright case involving the company's Java programming language as the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear Google Inc's appeal. The decision upholds a ruling that allows Oracle to seek licensing fees for the use of some of the Java language. Google had said it should be able to use Java without paying a fee.
